Homilies

Lifeissues is mainly concerned with publishing thoughtful articles directly related to issues raised in Evangelium Vitae. However, from the very beginning, we have also published a few related homilies, notably by Fr. Al Cariño, O.M.I., Fr. Tony Pueyo, and others.

Please use the pulldowns below to select a homily by Liturgical Calendar date.

New! "Where are you?"
Lent A-1

Al Carino
During Lent, our primary task is to discover where we are vis-a-vis our relationship with God and neighbor and then do something about it so that we may be able to answer without fear God's saving "Where are you?" question.

New! Creation, Fall and Redemption
First Sunday of Lent (A)

Antonio P. Pueyo
The journey of redemption passes through the road of Calvary. It is not an easy journey. It is the Way of the Cross.

New! The way of the cross: remember

Tom Bartolomeo
God doesn't have a memory but we do. God doesn't need a memory but we do. God doesn't forget but we do. God knows everything all at once and doesn't need to recall anything. When Jesus took on, however, the nature of a human being living in time he separated himself from the eternal bliss and glory of heaven. That for Christ was the worst of punishments much worse than being "driven into the desert . . . to be tempted by the devil for forty days and forty nights". We should remember, too, that God is not the ruler of this world. Satan is. And some would unwittingly befriend Satan is this world.
